Douglas Machines Corp. is a leading manufacturer of washing and sanitizing equipment used in the commercial meat, beef and poultry processing industry. Our machines comply with regulatory food safety standards such as FSMA, HACCP and GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) to ensure that your meat and poultry products are produced without physical, allergenic, chemical and microbiological hazards.
For 40 years, Douglas Machines has worked alongside meat, beef, and poultry processing companies involved in the production, importation/wholesaling, and retailing of meat products.
These companies trust Douglas with their container washing needs because we provide maximum productivity, decreased energy, chemical, and water costs, increased shelf life for equipment, tools and utensils, and reduced manpower for regular washing.
Meat and poultry manufacturers and processors deal with some of the most demanding and challenging work environments in the food industry. Traditionally, their workforce and equipment both endure severe environments, with hot/cold temperatures, high levels of humidity and rigorous washdown procedures in place to preserve the quality of the products while it is handled on the production line.
Regular daily hygienic procedures and high levels of equipment sanitization are vitally important for the industry, to ensure optimum food safety. Evolving standards require that reusable meat lugs, bins, vats, trays, crates and other handled containers are consistently washed and sanitized on a regularly scheduled basis to avoid cross-contamination, pathogens, viruses and potential recalls.
In an increasingly vigilant regulatory environment, purchasing a Douglas washing and sanitizing machine provides the reassurance of a reduced contamination risk due to human error, lower labor costs, higher productivity, consistent throughput and ensured product consistency. This in turn improves sanitization and aids process certification.
